Could 'Real Housewives of Miami' Be Close to Cancellation? A Cast Member Weighs In

Worried about the possibility that The Real Housewives of Miami could end up the second Real Housewives franchise to receive cancellation (after Bravo's ill-fated Real Housewives of Washington D.C. back in 2011)? Well, good news for you: Don't worry, because according to star Alexia Echevarria, Real Housewives of Miami will be back for another season. Though representatives for Bravo haven't yet confirmed or denied Echevarria's claims, she seemed pretty sure of herself when speaking with E! Online recently:

"There will definitely be a season four for Miami. I have spoken to producers and they are currently working on dates for taping, since we usually begin taping this time of year we were told taping is being pushed back a little," she said. "The producers spoke to all of us and told us all the same thing."

Apparently, according to Echevarria, the whole cancellation rumor began when cast member Joanna Krupa commented on the possibility. "Joanna has poor comprehension and lack of understanding as to what [the producers] said because what she is telling the media is not what they said," Echeverria said.

On her part, Krupa doesn't seem too phased: She's reportedly been campaigning to switch over to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in order to be "closer to home." From Realitytea, on the possibility that Miami could be cancelled: "You know what, it's hard for me to say, but no matter what happens I'm very grateful. It saved our relationship, we had an amazing wedding. That's the most important thing and we're really just focusing on opening up a place here (L.A.) and I'm focusing on myself right now more than anything." Additionally, she told E! that Echevarria's claims are incorrect, and her cast member needs to "fact check before trying to put words in my mouth that I have never once said."

Maybe season four really is a go. I mean, it looks like the catfights are already starting...
